I drove to Atlanta this past weekend. All by myself. This is huge. I am an anxious driver. It makes me nervous to go even 1 hour away by myself. It isn’t that I am afraid of driving. It is that I have serious car trouble anxiety. However, I did it! And I even had a good time in the car with my kids. We stopped for ice cream. We sang “Don’t Stop Believing” at the top of our lungs. I didn’t even freak out going through Atlanta. It was a good thing.
I am so glad that fall TV has started. I am not even a TV person, but there are a few shows that I like. I like Big Bang Theory very much. It was good to have a new episode to watch after a summer of watching the same episodes over and over again in syndication. We also like NCIS, but the first episode was boring. We watched the first couple of episodes of Go On and thought they were funny. But the last one was lame. And football. I am tortured with football very weekend. All. Weekend. Long.
My son was accepted to his first choice college. We got a call from the Dean of Admissions last night. Or I should say HE got a call from the dean last night. I am so happy! He qualifies for a pretty good scholarship, but we will have to take a trip in April so he can compete for the real biggies. Too bad it isn’t expenses paid. But for now, I will just be happy. This probably deserves a post of its own.
Freckle Face wants to be Captain America for Halloween. Fine by me. I am all about buying costumes. Don’t make me make one. I am not that kind of mom. Trick-or-treating is going to be scary awesome this year. He can’t wait. Many of our neighbors are already decorated to the hilt. I have a few mums out front. That has to count for something.
My girl aced her last Chemistry test. I am pretty excited about this! Teaching the high school subjects is hard. I am going to celebrate out loud whenever possible. I am writing another post for Module 7. My hope is to write a post for every module. Maybe it will help someone some day.
It is October! This month we will have been in our current location for six months. It feels like a year.
